An infamous Call of Duty cheater has been plaguing Modern Warfare’s servers and players are calling for Infinity Ward to swing the banhammer.
Modern Warfare has traversed a rocky road in its opening months. Countless bugs and glitches have overshadowed what is otherwise a mechanically sound game.
Despite Infinity Ward’s best efforts, Modern Warfare still remains full to the brim of small nuances that are hindering player’s experience. However, there is nothing worse than a cheater to really crash the party.
A player has caught a well known Australian cheater red-handed, after posting a clip to the Modern Warfare subreddit.
The cheater – operating under the alias ‘Straiyan’ – has found a way to hoodwink Activision Blizzard’s anti-cheat systems, despite being informed via the in-game reporting feature.
The two-part clip highlights Straiyan exploiting third-party software to rapidly eliminate players with ease, as the software pings their aim from player to player.
What’s perhaps more infuriating is that the cheater managed to obtain a Tactical Nuke for their ‘endeavors’ — which, of course, ended the game.
The Redditor claims that Straiyan also tormented their victims by writing: “Good luck banning me,” in a separate Modern Warfare lobby.
“This guy’s been on a rampage for the past two weeks on Aussie servers,” the post explains, “he is somehow bypassing the in-game reporting feature and is evading being banned by Blizzard’s anti-cheat.”
While the cheater continues to go on a rampage in Australian PC lobbies, consoles have a much more stringent in-house reporting system. Nonetheless, any Modern Warfare fan will be hoping that the cheater is banned in the near future.
